jq alternative we’ve discovered this week! (first here)
jqis hard to use. There are alternatives like
zq, but they still make you learn a new programming language. Im tired of learning new programming languages.
gqis not optimized for speed, flexibility or beauty.
gqis optimized for minimal learning/quick usage.
gqunderstands that you don’t use it constantly, you use it once a month and then forget about it. So when you come back to it,
gqwill be easy to relearn. Just use the builtin library just like you would any other go project and you’re done. No unfamiliar syntax or operations, or surprising limits. Thats it.
I don’t know if Go is a great fit for this use-case, but if you already know it well… makes sense.
